. a big question. why is all this happening right now? why in an environment where taxes are going up a lot, why are we back to the deals with the likes of which we haven't seen since those lazy and hazy, much lower tax rate of 2005? well, it could be that companies simply have no else where else to put their cash or maybe it is all part of a big bunker mentality. too risky to start something new. so they are just buying out arrival or two in their own business. the deals are back. usually that is good for investors. but before the president takes a bow and since christmas, maybe you should take note that these guys are spending all this money, not as an endorsement, maybe as a defense against it. the real story behind all of this, we have matt schuett. what is going on? >> well, there's a lot of cash out there. not returning anything. borrowing costs are very low. stocks are pretty cheap. we have an environment where growth is slow. it is tough to grow. so you think about doing it in organically rather than organically. people are willing to step out with a little bit more confidence
. protecting the environment has long been hollywood issue as you know. and joining us is an actor who stars in "the good wife now." chris was not involved in that but the environment may be one of them, yes? >> no, i wasn't there, but the organization that i'm involved with, rainforest action network, their people were there and -- . >> so when you heard the president speak last night about climate change and that we must do something about climate change, was that enough for you? >> no, no. i mean, look, i'm a huge supporter of obama's. it's the first president i ever donated money to. but i think in terms of climate change and the environment, he's been at best disappointing. i thought it was decent rhetoric and i don't know if there's any teeth to this but, you know, look, it's complicated. he can't -- i think politicians feel like it's political suicide to be talking about the environment. the time has come when we're in a planetary emergency here. i think he could be using the bully pulpit more here. >> last night he said for the sake of our children and future we must do more to comba

to believe them. melissa: how do you pick your bets in this environment? do you buy the index? do you buy etf? do you buy real estate? >> i like etf's. you know that. the symbol is rfp. it says if it is a broadening, rising market, you want to get into the goal weight etf's. you want to get the equal movement. melissa: david kotok, thank you so much for coming on. lori: senate democrats are offering an alternative plan. republicans already saying it does not stand a chance. here is rich and sends in washington with the latest. rich: congress settle taxes earlier this year. they are offering a minimum 30% effective tax rate for income for more than a million dollars. cutting spending on the military that appears to drop anyway. ending direct farm subsidies. the white house approves saying republicans in congress face a simple choice. do they protect investments and health care or do they continue to prioritize and protect tax loopholes that benefit the very few? republicans are waiting for the senate to vote first. >> when the senate passes a plan, we will be happy to take a look at it. until
it can be an issue because it can cause an artificial barrier and can hurt the jobs environment. we would recommend that the administration focus on creating jobs. that will create demand for people and that will create a natural wage increase. look, the reality most markets minimum wage is irrelevant. you're paying people well above that. but it is a scenario we think the focus should be on job creation first and you will get demand for folks and that will raise wages for folks. liz: talk about expansions plans here in the u.s. and europe. you're building up all kinds of properties including a couple here in new york and these are high-end or upper scale hotels, correct? >> higher scale. liz: you only do that when you believe an economy is coming back. >> we do. barring something unforeseen that will set us going backwards from washington which we do not think we will we get, we think the hotel business will be in sight for a stronger run. not a lot of hotels coming on for 14 or 15. that should be a four or five-year good run. we'll start with the wind at your back. we hope for great thi
